Event Details

In 2010, Louisiana-based artist and biologist, Brandon Ballengée, saw firsthand the largest environmental disaster in United States history—the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Le Sang Noir (“Black Blood”) is a visual response to this tragedy. Locked in jars, suspended in alcohol, and posed in petri dishes, Ballengée’s forms tell stories of species altered and obliterated. His prints, sculptures and field projects are a narrative of human impact in the Anthropocene. By implicating us in their creation, the projects also inspire us to learn more about life within these complex, and often fragile, ecosystems. Le Sang Noir will be on display from February 15 through March 31.
